IT’S DANGEROUS TO FORGET

There may be humor in the guy who forgets his anniversary and his cute wife hits him over the head with a paper towel or thumps him on the forehead.  There may be a chuckle when someone forgets to check themselves before leaving the bathroom and toilet paper is hanging from their pants as they walk down the work hallway. We are prone to forget things and sometimes often, but there are some things that are too dangerous to forget.

THE LORD

Those who choose not to retain the knowledge of God will lose their soul. “But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it–not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it–they will be blessed in what they do” (James 1:25).

Blessings flow to those who remember the Lord and when this life is over they will enjoy eternal life.

 “Be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them fade from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them” (Deuteronomy 4:9).

“For the mystery of iniquity does already work: only he who now restrains will do so, until he be taken out of the way” (2 Thessalonians 2:7).  You may have read my post titled “THE BIBLE on the History Channel”, if not, you should read the post and the comments. I believe the information is rewarding and compliments Deuteronomy 4:9, above, particularly the part on teaching your children.

May you not forget the word of God as it is written and may you seek to retain his knowledge for the world is working hard to deceive. Rightly dividing the word of truth will be required, because the world is using the Bible to deceive. This concept is not foreign, but old. Satan tried the same with Jesus in the wilderness.

 Just because someone holds the Bible and teaches from the Bible does not mean this person is saved and knows the Lord. Remember the Pharisees?

It’s dangerous to forget that belief in Jesus will incur persecution.  Think it not strange. They persecuted Jesus and they will persecute you.

  2. So very true! Thank you for the needed reminder.

  3. I’m so lucky. I have alcoholism [from which I’m sober 33 years], Bipolar Disorder, and PTSD to beat the band. I can never forget my relationship with God – because without maintaining that relationship on a minute by minute basis, I would be dead and 6 feet in the ground. I consider myself very, very lucky to have all these problems. They definitely keep me close to God.
